This is a presentation created in 2003 on Rapid Application Development, a methodology evolved from Structured Systems Analysis and Design & Waterfall models which tend to focus on planning work tasks while RAD focuses on development and prototyping. Note: 12 years later, in 2015, the prevailing methodologies include Agile models which further optimize cutover from requirements-to-solutions in a feature-driven cross-functional team. Although Agile is a solid concept on its own, the actually implementation of a project lifecycle involves many of the same key concepts as RAD. This is further detailed in the 1993 book, “Inside RAD: How to Build a Fully Functional System in 90 Days or Less”, a journal of an actual 90 day project using RAD.
